Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, signed by President Obama in 2010, and related regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) (collectively, the Conflict Minerals Law) are aimed at addressing the violence and human rights issues caused by the mining of and trade in conflict minerals in the DRC and adjoining countries. The Conflict Minerals Law requires companies, such as Jet Machine Works, Inc. in Houston Texas, to conduct supply chain due diligence on the conflict minerals.
Conflict minerals – tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold – are often used in manufacturing.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (the DRC) and some of its adjoining countries have been consumed by violence and human rights violations, several militant groups control, exploit and profit from the mining of and trade in so-called “conflict minerals” in the region and leverage the proceeds to fund a continuing campaign of brutal violence against innocent civilians, including children.
Jet Machine Works, Inc. is committed to complying fully with the Conflict Minerals Law.
We support the efforts to end the human suffering and environmental impact associated with mining of Conflict Minerals. We are also committed to sourcing components and material from companies that share our values regarding human right and social responsibility. Jet Machine Works, Inc. expects that its suppliers will not knowingly supply Jet Machine Works, Inc with products containing conflict minerals
